Man, just the thought of cardio wears me out. I have never been a fan of cardio. You will find me throwing weight around all the time!
I'm there a little over an hour after warm-up, lifting, and stretching.
There are goals that I have set and achieved, but more than pride I've felt blessed and honored to be given the opportunities that I have been given and to be recognized for my perseverance.
I would say no longer than two weeks. I go crazy if I don't
get in the gym, it’s my sanctuary.
Yes, I have had plenty of obstacles and setbacks, however the way that you deal with those things is what makes you a success.
My number one tip to anyone is to set short term goals. For example,
"I will do cardio three times this week."
I think its ok to have a little something if you are craving it. Its hard to completely cut everything out, you can drive yourself crazy!
To pick a fitness model, that is a tough one, there are so many inspiring, great people in the fitness industry! But I grew up playing hockey so my favorite athlete is Alexander Ovechkin. Not only is he a leading goal scorer, but he will not hesitate to throw his gloves off and mix it up! He could beat Sidney Crosby any day. :)
Since I'm not a fan of cardio, I like to do things that keep my mind off of it,
like kickboxing or Muay Thai.
I switch up my routine pretty often. I am trying to put on muscle, so all of my reps low, around 8-10. I warm up for 20mins to get my blood flowing and end with some good foam rolling and dynamic stretching. Right now my days are:
Monday: Quads and Hamstrings
Tuesday: Shoulders, Abs
Wednesday: Back and Chest
Thursday: Butt and Calves, Abs
Friday: Biceps and Triceps
Saturday: Yoga, Abs
My diet is well balanced with a small amount of supplementation and the
rest is a trade secret ;)
I love BSN Products! They just released AminoX that has BCAAs and is a great post workout. I also recommend their N.O-Xplode for a killer pump during your workout.
1. Set short-term goals
2. Eat to workout, don't workout to eat.
3. Don't lose sight of having fun!
